Trump says Tillerson could be tougher, but they have good relationship

Mensa has weighed in on a brewing war of wits between Donald Trump and his secretary of state, Rex Tillerson, offering to host an intelligence test between the pair. "His spokesperson, however, did come out and clarify that the secretary of state never used those words", she added.

"So much of our news is just made up-FAKE!"

Still, last week Trump told reporters he has "total confidence" in his secretary of state. "And the early success of many presidents no doubt exposed them to those types of qualifying avenues".


Brown declined to say whether either party has taken an admission test before, but did name several former USA presidents, including Jimmy Carter, Bush Senior and Bill Clinton, whose academic backgrounds and non-political careers "would have propelled them into Mensa". "But if he did that, I guess we'll have to compare IQ tests".

"And I can tell you who is going to win". While he denied ever considering resignation, he did not expressly deny making the derogatory remark about the president.

While the two men have publicly professed a positive relationship with one another, Trump and Tillerson have appeared to clash at times, most recently on the issue of North Korea. That came just over a month after Trump responded to a North Korean missile test by telling reporters that if the regime of Kim Jong-un issues further threats, the US will retaliate with "fire and fury like the world has never seen". Trump and Tillerson met in the Oval Office on Friday, sources tell CNN, and are meeting twice Tuesday as their public feud continues.


"I'm not undermining. I think I'm actually strengthening authority", Mr Trump said.

On Wednesday, NBC reported that during a major national security meeting on July 20, President Trump expressed a desire to dramatically expand America's nuclear arsenal.
